Give Stuff, Get Stuff! It's Just That Easy!

Hey there folks! The holidays are barreling towards us, and the end of the year season is here! The world being what it is right now, I know we're all a little squeezed for cash right now, but at this time of year, it's especially important to remember that there are those that have even less than you or I do. And some of those people are kids. I know that growing up, my family didn't exactly have a lot, and while my parents wouldn't ever admit it, I'm pretty sure we benefited from the kindness of others more than once at Christmas time. As a result, I always try to pass that kind of joy along. Having said all that, a friend of the site, known on Twitter only as @RobotsPJs would like to give you stuff for donating to charity. We mentioned it on the last Fruitless Pursuitscast, but I've finally gotten a chance to put up the details. I'll let him explain after the break:


Win Toys For Helping Tots with Geeks for Tots!

10/28/11: Geeks for Tots is back! The original contest that encourages
donations to the Toys for Tots charity is asking geeks to unite and
donate toys and enter to win fantastic prizes.

There are far too many kids that won’t get gifts this holiday season
and the Toys for Tots program is here to help. Toys for Tots takes new
toys and distributes them to kids in need. To encourage donations to
the Toys For Tots program, the Geeks For Tots contest is offering
prizes to those who send in proof of donations to Toys for Tots.

The Prizes up for grabs are:

- Premium Format Clone Trooper from Sideshow Toys
- Gift cards to Big Bad Toy Store
- Star Wars figures from Brian’s Toy Store
- Gift cards from 80s Tees
- Spider-Man themed Mini-Mates from Luke’s Toy Store
- Necklaces from Bling Squared
- Geeky soap from Yeung Moxey

All that is required to participate in the contest is a picture of the
contestant donating at a Toys For Tots drop off box or a forwarded
copy of a receipt from an online cash donation at the Toys For Tots

More details like where to send the photos and receipts, please visit
